*I want to start a discussion about the remaining artwork tasks &
issues that need resolving for Lucid. This is a great opportunity for
folks with some artistic talent to start contributing - just pick a
task, complete it, and send an e-mail to this mailing list or update
the relevant bug with your work. I only have a few tasks at the moment
to talk about but I'm sure Pasi will chime in with more if there is
indeed any others.
*If you want to start a discussion about a particular item below,
please create a new thread!
*1. On some hardware, the boot splash will look distorted. To fix this,
we need to update the Xubuntu plymouth theme's xubuntu-logo.png image
to be 4-bit (ie. 16 colors) - which shouldn't be too much of a problem
since the current image only uses white + transparency (so we need to
just get rid of the transparent elements and make it look good without
it). To get started, just grab the xubuntu-artwork branch by running
'bzr get lp:xubuntu-artwork'.
Pending on the logo, as Lionel said.
*2. GDM don't seem to be using Xubuntu theming anymore. I'm not sure of
the exact reason (haven't looked) but the solution might require
updating our theme, updating the relevant configuration, or something
else. Lionel (mr_pouit) or myself might be able to help you tackle this
if you need help.
*3. The icon to indicate if an element in the UI is
expandable/collapsible has changed from simple black arrow pointing
either down or sideways to a box with a plus or minus in it. This, I
suspect, is the result of changes made for Ubuntu. We need to
investigate if we want this change or if it doesn't fit well into
Xubuntu's look & feel. If the latter, we'll then need to figure out
how to change it back and then to do so.
*4. New background.
As Lionel said, it's in the works, but anybody is free to propose
*5. Release countdown banner - see http://www.ubuntu.com/getubuntu/countdown
for inspiration from Ubuntu's.
See #6, but here it doesn't matter so much. Maybe a blue version of the
"orange" style, if somebody is willing to recolor.
*6. Release announcement banner
Usually this has been made from (a part of) the wallpaper and some
text. If you feel like we can do any kind of release banner with no
link to the actual release itself, then feel free to; however, I'd
consider this a drawback.
*7. Updated screenshots for tour and other pages on website.
It would also be better if these were made only after we have our final
*8. Other stuff!
I don't think there is anything else Lucid-specific to be worked on.
